If you are bored with the usual Christmas celebration, why not try something different in Frontera?
In their last Christmas menu, they had this traditional tamales, which is something similar to dumpling.
Taste wise, it tasted like corn due to the masa dough (which is mainly made of corn flour). Texture wise, it was flaky. All these made it an interesting entreé.
Besides the tamales, Frontera served butternut squash soup.
it did not look pretty. I was anticipating something similar to pumpkin soup in terms of sweetness and texture. Pretty much I was right about the sweetness, but the texture was watery, taste nuttier. Few drizzles of sage enhanced the butternut flavor. I love this soup very much!
Finally the main! This was the Frontera's mesquite smoked turkey.
The way it was served was very unusual. Instead of cranberry sauce alone, Frontera made
cranberry chipotle relish, with jalapeno corn bread dressing, candied sweet potatoes, broccoli florets topped with chili con quesco.
The sweet potatoes was so soft that it melted in my mouth. Turkey itself was very unusual, somewhat similar to chicken in terms of texture. Impressive I must say, and the way it was cooked, mesquite smoke enhanced the third dimension of this dish.
The overall combination was interesting and I strongly recommend you must try this!
Last but not least, the signature key lime pie.
The name says it all. It was very sourish ( I like it that way
) and the soft layer was very smooth and dense. When you eat it, you should pair every scoop with the thin layer of crunchy base. The soft layer would be better if it was denser though.
It was the most unusual Christmas dinner I have ever had, thanks to Frontera.
